Carlos Kotkin - Standup And Stories From A Heartthrob
Carlos Kotkin seems to be the Garrison Keillor of stand-up. Most of his material seems to be read rather that done in the conventional (?) standup manner. Rest assured that I would rarely even entertain then notion of comedy revolving around a boy's childhood chickens (blame that horrible SNL skit with Dana Carvey), but that is but one of the topics that I laughed my ass off about on Standup And Stories From A Heartthrob. I've never heard of him before, but he seems to be one of the many LA improv guys making moves in this day and age. He reminds me a little of Mike Birbiglia, but is definitely not a new jack riding MB's coattails. Grab a copy from Carlos here.
